Choosing a Thane Suboxone Doctor

There are plenty of options when in the market for a Suboxone Doctor in Thane, AK. Choosing a physician for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be difficult, and it is important to get the proper information. Suboxone is a prescription, and like many other medications, abuse is common. Therefore, you and your loved ones must be asking the right questions. Suboxone is not a cure for addiction, but rather one part of a recovering addict's treatment plan. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Thane, AK, always be certain that they fit your needs medically, clinically, and financially.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, there is lots of controversy on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some addicts have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a decreased rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% exhibited abstinence once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased. Other studies did not show long term recovery with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ended, including cases where additional treatments where provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Thane, AK

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative substances that have previously been used in Thane, AK for opioid addiction treatment, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, only methadone clinics can administer methadone. For people who are motivated to break free from addiction and who have access to a safe and supportive living environment, these medically assisted treatment options might work for you.

There are contraindications for the use of Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Previous abuse of MAT

For individuals who are not a good candidate for Suboxone treatment, abstinence may be the best alternative option. For individuals who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. It is highly advised to seek treatment from a Thane, AK opioid detoxification center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.

Selecting a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska

Once you have a list of resources that meet your financial criteria make sure the doctors are qualified. Qualified doctors and mid-level practitioners in the U.S. must have an X-license in order for them to prescribe Suboxone as a medication assisted treatment option for an opioid addict. These individuals should also offer some sort of community involvement to ensure success whether that involves outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to increase success while partaking in medication assisted treatment.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

There are a lot of inconsistencies in the success rates of Suboxone and Medically Assisted Detox, usually depending on the quality of care. Not all Suboxone Doctors or Medically Assisted Detoxes are the same. Unfortunately, the healthcare industry is packed with fraud, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is no exception. To encourage a greater success rate during Suboxone Maintenance, we advise using a trusted Suboxone Doctor.

Treatment via a Suboxone doctor can be paid for by insurance or self pay. Always inquire with the Suboxone Doctor, as to what their payment options are. Remember that depending on the doctor, even if they accept insurance, they may not accept yours. If you are eligible for coverage under your insurance plan, make certain you specifically inquire about what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Finally, always reach out to your insurance to confirm your deductible, out of pockets, and copays prior to going to the Suboxone Doctor in Alaska.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

The medication Suboxone is made up of of two substances. Those substances are buprenorphine and naloxone, and the use of these 2 substances together has been approved by the FDA to treat opioid addiction. However, in recent years Suboxone has received significant criticism because of the possibility of addiction to Subxone. We have also seen a rise of addicts in medication assisted treatment programs Alaska having unintended overdoses. As a result, this has triggered others to seek other options. Alternative treatments addicts have considered include methadone, going cold turkey, Subutex, or vivitrol. Numerous options are available and each person should look into each option available with their doctor before choosing which will be most effective to overcome opioid addiction.
